I have to disagree with your opening statement: "The linear measure of one royal cubit is equal to the linear measure of the remen times the square root of two." This implies that the cubit is derived from the remen, when in fact the cubit comes first. Then by taking the two diagonals it is found that the diagonal is 10 palms and the half-diagonal is 5 palms. These approximate the square root of 2 (as 10/7) and its inverse (as 5/7). These approximations are very crude. The close approximation to the square root of 2 (as 99/70) only comes from measuring the diagonal of a 10c x 10c square.
